4.2 miles
route was  long grass – fight for Jake as it was head height, nettles and brambles,
a quick run from two curious horses , old railway ,old coal mine, red moss (be very careful)
deep bog and rough grass,

on the start

one of the landfill check points

Reebok and police station

one of the overgrown paths

railway crossing

view towards Horwich station

overgrown head height for me

over head height !

towards the motorway

I found this difficult as the noise was too much

running away from the noise

Another source of material was an old tip at Blackrod from where some 300,000 tons of burnt colliery shale was obtained. A further example of the construction of a motorway improving the environment, by using waste materials

jumping down from a broken style

tramway?
